On her path to cosmetics-world domination, 19-year-old Kylie Jenner has hit some (understandable) speed bumps. Her website has crashed on more than one occasion, the Better Business Bureau has come after her company’s (literal) inability to deliver, respected beauty bloggers have noted a decline in Lip Kit brush and formula quality, and so on. However, her stans’ thirst for Lip Kits remains unquenchable.

Knowing that Lip Kit fanatics will wander into eBay — and even shadier — territory to get their hands on sold-out shades, counterfeiters are producing faux products and copycat websites to match.

So not cute…..” She attached the following video as evidence:
